countdown to christmas : philosophy’s glowing days ahead set …

My very very first item from Philosophy was their cult fave skin cleanser, Purity. I was in love with it and used it religiously in my early 20’s, and revisit it often. As a staple of the brand, I think everyone should try this one step skin cleanser at least once (or twice, or thrice) in their life!


Suitable for all skin types, the brand’s holiday set,  “Glowing Days Ahead“, which begins with Purity is a perfect pick for the complexion perfection junkie in your life. Complete with all the best items that Philosophy is famous for, its the set that will allow the lucky recipient the opportunity to dabble in a little bit of everything. It’s basically a tricked out skincare regimen in a box.

I personally suggest to anyone who gets this under their tree, to start with Purity, Hope in a Jar, and Time in a Bottle daily; Purity is creamy enough to remove the very last trace of makeup and washes away like it wasn’t even there in the first place; Hope in a Jar will not only help to hydrate and keep the skin soft, but it refines and repairs the complexion as well; and Time in a Bottle, will help fight off the signs of aging – the reason any skincare enthusiast is an enthusiast in the first place. Once the above three items become a routine for you, add in Microdelivery Facial Wash and Resurfacing Peel once or twice a week. This will help to remove all the dead skin cells, and resurface the skin for a more even tone and appearance.

Philosophy is currently available online and also, at Sephora. There are many sets to choose from, but this is by far, my favourite so … Act (shop!) quick!!!
